MSDN Events Presents:
The MSDN Mid Atlantic Roadshow Silverlight Data Access and Windows 7 for Developers
Join Microsoft® Evangelists Dani Diaz, G. Andrew Duthie, and David Isbitski as they tour the Mid Atlantic this Fall presenting an afternoon packed full of cutting edge tips and techniques for developers and architects.
With two longer sessions, we’ll dig deeper into data access in Silverlight™, and check out the most important features in Windows® 7 for Developers.
Data Access and Network Options in Silverlight
Wondering about the most effective way of getting data into your Silverlight application? Trying to sort out the different options available? Then this session is for you. We’ll open up with an overview of the different networking and data access techniques available in Silverlight. Then, we’ll dive into examples of using each of these technologies, and along the way we’ll also examine the role these technologies play in other .NET applications. Finally, we’ll show you the Sample Data feature in Expression Blend™ 3, and the best method for transitioning from Sample Data to production data in your applications.

What’s New in Windows 7 for Developers
Windows 7 has many improvements in both performance and user interface features that you should be taking advantage of when developing your applications. In this session we’ll cover an overview of coding those features users will expect such as Libraries, the new Taskbar, and Jump Lists. Next up is taking advantage of several performance improvements like Trigger Start services and the new Windows Troubleshooter. Finally, we’ll show you how to add several of the new interface options you won’t want to miss including Multi-Touch and the Ribbon Menu.
